This session seeks to bring together people theorizing about historic injustices or inequities while also engaging in archival or other historical work. Most critical geographical work is grounded in history, but how do we, as geographers, engage the record of history? How do archives, historical data sets, and oral histories inform our research, and allow us to look beyond the text on paper, especially when our projects are seeking out histories of inequality and injustice? This session, Reading for Injustice Across Historical Records, will bring together scholars whose work addresses or seeks to address historical injustices and inequities. This research is dependent on archival and other forms of historical data and that have a commitment to tracing histories of inequality.
